TRUTH CAN BE STRONGER THAN FICTION
In this deeply compelling, true life story, a sheriff rids a corrupt county of inequities, along with his tag along son--Rodger Weaver. Reared in an Oklahoma jail, Rodger looked forward to his dad, the legendary Sheriff L.L. "Slim" Weaver, capturing an array of criminals, many of which made a deep impact and lasting impression on his life. Exposing fragmented lives and fascinating pasts, readers will get a nostaglic foothold on days gone by as they trail behind a sheriff with a heart as big as his stature. Sizing in at well over seven feet inclusive of boot heels and Stetson, Slim righted wrongs and gave second chances...all without a gun.
There is sadness as well. This true life narrative parallels Rodger's current personal battle, dealing with paralysis and incurable cancer, as he reflects on his childhood with a colorful and expressive account. Due to a tragic accident, after acting as a "good samaritan" to assist a fallen rider at a horse show, Rodger became paralyzed from the chest down and then learned he had untreatable cancer. Each chapter begins with his current diary entry after he was given a grim diagnosis on October Eve, 2010...two months to a year to live.
